Parent due to go on maternity leave. Advise on charges please. Two children currently attending my setting. One will be starting Reception in September and the other is 2 and 7 months. They current come to me 3 days a week. If parent wants to drop a day while on mat leave any suggestions as to charges?

Are you sure parent won't just have kids at home completely?? You obviously know she is expecting so i don't think its unreasonable to ask her what her plans are. She might not want to pay for a space for the older one if they are off to reception so you will need to know if you need to fill the space.
If they want to drop a day then i would just charge the usual 4 weeks notice to change contract and allow it - usual charges for the other 2 days.
I personally won't keep the spaces open for less than full fees as I need the income.
